Course Information

9th Annual “Autumn in New York” Coherence Therapy Two-Day Intermediate Intensive Training

Are you seeking to advance your Coherence Therapy skills together with colleagues who share your commitment to doing deep, decisively effective work? In this weekend intensive you will receive coaching tailored exactly to your individual learning curve. Each day of the workshop begins with a live demonstration by the instructors. Then, participants work together in small groups, doing their own real sessions and taking turns as therapist as the trainers provide real-time coaching that meets you at your skill level.

Each practice session is followed by a debriefing of the experience that addresses any and all aspects of Coherence Therapy, before starting a new session. It's an action learning intensive that will attune your left brain, right brain and subcortical brain for facilitating the natural process of memory reconsolidation that dissolves ingrained emotional patterns formed long ago.

In addition, experiencing Coherence Therapy as the client provides invaluable first-hand knowledge of the process. Everything you learn in this workshop will be useful immediately in your own sessions on Monday. At the end of each day, the group will sit back and view a session video.

Prerequisites for attending this workshop:
This is not an introductory workshop. Participation is only for licensed therapists and counselors (or students in accredited graduate training programs) who are already familiar with the entire methodology of Coherence Therapy by (a) having at least several months experience using Coherence Therapy with clients and (b) having studied any of the primary texts:

Presenter

 

Target Audience:

Psychologists, Psychoanalysts, Social Workers, Counselors/Marriage and Family Therapists, Creative Arts Therapists, Chemical Dependency Counselors, Educators, Nurses

 

Course Objectives:

• Identify the specific features of experience that clients want changed (feelings, thoughts, behaviors, somatics, circumstances)

• Apply experiential techniques that bring into clients’ conscious awareness the non-conscious emotional learnings (schemas) that underlie and maintain unwanted patterns

• Distinguish the indicators of these schemas as they emerge during a session

• Create experiences that integrate the retrieved schemas into ongoing awareness

Find a client’s vivid knowledge that specifically contradicts and disconfirms a retrieved schema

• Create an experience of the juxtaposition of the symptom-necessitating schema and the contradictory knowledge

• Inspect for the markers of transformational change
